Xbox One doesn't support vertical orientation - "Do it at yo

Horizontal for me. Vertical seems a bit dangerous, I mean the PS2 you could get a massive base if you wanted it that way up, but the 360's centre of mass is much further away from its base, which is also pretty narrow.

I'm sure the Xbox 360 doesn't really support vertical orientation properly either. Nothing locks the disc into place and a slight knock while the disc is spinning can be catastrophic.

Always had my consoles on their belly, upright is unnatural. If the NES had been upright things may have been different. :)

I don't know who would try setting it up vertically, it looks like it was built to be horizontal. I keep my 360 S vertical as it just looks like the proper way to have it set up.

I stood mine up like the first xbox,then day 1 mw2 got a disk burn and it was like a right hook to the nether region.I went back to blockbuster with my burned disk and lucky the guy gave me a new one and told me on the sly to lie my console down.That was the first and last disk destroyed and was good advice all round.

I lie mine down. To be honest I haven't the room to stand t up and I dread to think what my little ones would do with it if it were stood up. They are already like moths to a flame with the green lights already!!

As I suffer from vertigo, it's horizontal for me :arrow:
